Arctic Zero

Ice Cream

So here’s the scoop, Arctic Zero offers a variety of tasty frozen desserts crafted from ingredients like faba bean protein and monk fruit for sweetness. The pints supply a significantly lower sugar load than traditional ice creams and offer dietary fiber. Time to snag a pint of Cookie Dough Chunk and curl up on the couch with your favorite scary movie.

Organic, sugar-free chocolate that actually tastes good? We are sold. Phi Kind offers a variety of sweets to enjoy, and we’ve got our sights set on the plant-based Almond Butter Cookie Dough Truffles. Can you blame us?

The Collaborative

Pudding

The Chocolate Dessert Pods are giving us life! These individual desserts are perfect for an after-dinner indulgence (or before-dinner indulgence!)—we won’t judge. The coconut cream and dark chocolate give this 100-calorie pack a creamy mouthfeel and sweet taste without going overboard with sugar.

Outshine Fruit Essences

Frozen Fruit Bars

We’ve got something cool and refreshing to keep you company during your Halloween movie marathon. Outshine Fruit Essences bars can be found in Strawberry Lemonade and Berry Medley and contain significantly less sugar than the original fruit bars we know and love.

Chia Pouches

A sweet treat rich in fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids? Sign us up. We think chia squeeze pouches are basically a food group. Try these tasty, good-for-you treats in a variety of flavors such a Strawberry Lemonade, Berry Burst, and Mango Coconut.

Lily's

Chocolate

Botanically sweetened with Stevia and erythritol, Lily’s chocolates may be lower in sugar but offer a bounty of sweetness. Try the Extra Dark Chocolate varieties like Salted Almond or try out their Dark Chocolate baking chips and spend Halloween baking up a spooky storm.
